    A bigger facility ready for ambitious growth plans

    Updated 22/08/2017

    We’re excited to have expanded our facilities at our Farnham HQ, UK.  It’s the second expansion in the last 3 years and comes in response to growing customer demand, especially overseas, our recently launched Partner Programme, and growing product line-up.

    Primarily the expanded premises offer us considerably more space for production and research and development.  Following our ISO9001 certification in 2015, the expansion also coincides with significant investment in new systems to help streamline manufacturing and operations.

    With plans to build on our current product portfolio, especially in the field of high performance graphics, the expansion will be instrumental in our response to emerging trends we see on the horizon.

    If you’d like to know more about our business, our growth plans, or our products please get in touch.

  • NVIDIA GTX

    Power and performance from the NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti

    Updated 10/08/2017

    We purpose-build bespoke Rack and Mini PCs for a broad range of applications on a regular basis. These are usually created in response to a customer’s unique need from their unit, and designed to help achieve a certain objective, be that to accommodate a compact design for use where space is a premium, or else realise valuable functionality.

    One of the most interesting recent trends we’re seeing amongst our customers is the demand for high-quality, advanced graphics capability. As more applications require rich graphical support, separate Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are increasingly important.  NVIDIA GPUs are at the forefront of the technological advances taking place in this arena and accordingly we’re getting regularly asked if our machines can support NVIDIA graphics cards.

    We have delivered a considerable number of project builds that meet this requirement, in our 2U Nano (short depth) and 2U PC cases harnessing NVIDIA’s GTX 10xx-series graphics cards.  Part of the GeForce range, the cards are regularly used by the gaming industry to provide a rich visual experience. With their flagship GTX 1080 Ti GPU hailed as the best graphics card on the market today, we have built many machines that take advantage of the extraordinary performance this and other NVIDIA cards offer.

    Based on the new NVIDIA Pascal architecture, it means our machines can capitalise on these incredible specs:

    • Memory speed of 10 Gbps
    • 4 Boost Clock Relative
    • 1733 MHz Boost Clock Actual
    • Up to 3x faster performance
    • Advanced vapour chamber cooling technology

    We’ve already implemented the card into our 2U Nano and 2U PC for various applications, and continue to receive requests to build the capability into other models in our product line-up as our customers seek to blend small form factor devices with maximum performance.

    For more information on the NVIDIA range of GeForce GTX graphics cards, or else if you’d like to find out if a high-performing project build is right for you, get in touch.
